SOAR

I have again been inspired by the warm weather to create my Spring tag for Artistic Outpost.
The tag has been coloured with wild honey and walnut stain Distress Inks to give me those warm tones and spritzed with water to add further interest to the backdrop. I have used the Birds of a Feather plate to stamp the bird directly onto my tag with black Archival Ink.
I have used one of my favourite sentiments from the Quote and Quotables plate added to the top of my tag along with a mini tag stamped with 'spring is here' to add another layer of interest, combined with a wooden bird again coloured with Distress Inks.
A further tag has been added at an angle to the bottom of my tag, stamped with the background stamp from the Birds of a Feather plate along with a second mini tag stamped with 'SOAR' taken from another of the sentiments from the Quote and Quotables plate. I have also added some random stamping to the background and two more wooden birds for dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x

Spring has definitely arrived on your tag. Lovely colours Tracy. I think this weekend was practically summer weather, I got a terrific sun tan in the garden. Michelle x
